The Dental Implants Specialist has the vocation to provide care to all patients who need to solve complex aesthetic and functional problems of the area. Maxillofacial: face, mouth, teeth, jaw, and neck. It also offers collaboration in advanced treatments for oral health professionals who need techniques that are not performed in their consultations and need the intervention of a hospital service.
Who is the best Dental Implants Specialist?
This is a subject that creates a lot of controversy in our profession since not only dentists specializing in Oral Surgery place dental implants, but doctors specializing in Maxillofacial Surgery also do it. Dental implants replace the loss of one or more teeth missing or lost for any reason. It is a safe and durable solution. Currently, the implants are made of pure titanium and act as a substitute for the tooth root. Once the implants are integrated with the bone, they will support the new prosthesis or crowns attached to them, giving the appearance of a natural tooth. The specialist in dental implants, must know perfectly what is the correct position each tooth and from there, look for where to place the dental implants, in fact, this is the first thing that is learned in the specialty of Oral Surgery.
Many people do not know, but to place dental implants, the least is the bone available to the patient. This should be in the background because if where a bone is needed there is not, we can use reconstructive techniques to recover it. In any case, what always matters is the location of the final teeth. The maxillofacial surgeons obviously know how to work the bone and be able to place implants in compromised situations very bone, the problem lies in placing the teeth. A professional without training in a dental prosthesis can place the implants without adequate angulation so that later you cannot put the cover. And I emphasize this last point: it will not matter if the implant is fully integrated with the bone if, at the time of placing the sleeve, angulation is not what is needed.
The first thing that a good specialist at the Dental Implants Specialist is to plan the final prosthesis, taking into account factors such as, for example, the skeletal relationship between the upper jaw and the jaw. After this, it will be decided what type of implants will be placed, the angulation of them and what size they will have. If this is not done, once the surgeon has placed the implants anywhere, the doctor who must make the prosthesis will face a tremendous problem: how the patient is told that the treatment will be aesthetically wrong, or that there are implants that are not going to be used or that should be removed?
Not being a maxillofacial surgeon will know more than a dentist specialist in oral surgery. Surely there are doctors who get advice from a specialist in a dental prosthesis, but there are many who do not and then come to the problems for the patient, as for the dentist who must amend the mess.
Dental Implants Specialist:
Dental implants are titanium devices that are inserted into the jaw or maxilla to replace the roots of the teeth that have been lost. It is important that they are placed where there is enough bone and gum so that the implant can function properly. Through different tests, we will study and plan your individual case, and determine which the most appropriate type of dental rehabilitation is. For this reason, we place great emphasis on preventive dentistry: we are concerned about the long-term health of our patients, and we help them “cure in health” their teeth and gums.
